The colour of Laurentien pencil crayons — and trip across Canada — inspired Coquitlam painter David Pacholko to create The Laurentien Collection, a series on show at the Port Moody Arts Centre (2425 St. Johns St.) until March 21.
Like Tickle Me Teal (pictured), each canvas has a life of its own, he said, highlighting abstract shapes, textures, brush strokes and hues.
And each piece captures a specific time: a fleeting moment or a past experience.
A graphic designer, Pacholko has spread his public art around Port Moody including for the Evergreen Extension and on a city garbage truck. Last year, he exhibited Moments Remixed at the Gallery Bistro, also in Port Moody.
